Three great cruisers with classic and timeless taste

Linssen Yachts Ranger Cruise 430 SV

Made by one of the oldest Dutch shipyards, this is a classic boat that best represents the synergy of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. Classic marine boats and economical in operation, always the focus of interest.

A relatively contained deadrise and a prominent deckhouse with a somewhat retro line are the hallmarks of this boat, which provides good interior volume thanks to the hood that hooks up from the rollbar to the forward area of the deckhouse. An original solution that makes it possible to transform the saloon into an offshoot of the cockpit and give more ease to outdoor living, which would otherwise be somewhat penalized by the overtly Nordic look of the forward area with no solarium.

A glass door leads to the first quadrant, which is developed on the main deck with, to starboard, the beautiful helm station equipped with a helm worthy of the name. On the lower deck, but making partial use of the highest part of the deckhouse, we find the dinette, on the left, with the kitchen cabinet in front of it. Continuing toward the bow leaves the bathroom to the right, which is preceded by the shower compartment that has a separate entrance. The master cabin is forward with the usual double bed in the center, while the guest cabin is to the left with good height at the entrance and then taking advantage of the space under the dinette. Attention to woodwork and the warmth of the interior are a characteristic feature.

Mochi Craft Dolphin 74 Cruiser

This version of Mochi Craft’s flagship planing line is an enjoyable yacht, especially in the common areas, both inside and out. First, one notices the lengthening of the upper deck to the stern, which allowed the sundeck to extend over a larger area. Large side windows, with all their now well-known lighting and panoramic benefits, lead into the interior of the hall.

Outside, the Dolphin 74 Cruiser offers many areas for conviviality and relaxation. The flying bridge is very distinctive because the command post is an island placed at the central point of the bridge. This solution freed up space in the bow for a C-shaped dinette developed over the entire beam, while in the stern, again over the full width, there is an extended sundeck as large as the one in the cockpit. Here there is no shortage of dinette seating along the transom and plenty of free space to move around.

In the salon, the dining area has been moved to the bow, opposite the galley, to make room aft for a large living room with an L-shaped sofa, plus another opposing sofa.

Below deck are four cabins. The master stateroom is amidships, while the port guest cabin is double, as is the VIP at the apex of the bow.

Austin Parker AP 54 Fly

Mixing the lobster tradition and the modernity of the fly is the stylistic play of this boat. The result is a modern yacht, but one that retains that vague retro flavor, lest we forget its origin as an “old” lobster boat.

The AP54 Fly breaks out of the chorus of classic lobsters to present itself with the same aggressive-looking boat tones. Fulvio de Simoni managed to mix two different styles and two types of boats, namely the lobster boat and the flybridge, moving between the past and the present, achieving a lot of space on the inside, but keeping the elusive shapes on the outside.

In the cockpit, there is provision for the transom to open fully, by means of a hydraulic mechanism, so as to expand the (already vast) footprint to the extreme limit of the boat. This solution does not eliminate the dinette that is usually developed aft, because in this case it is articulated forward on the starboard side into an L-shaped sofa.

Also distinctive is the staircase leading to the fly, formed by teak steps on a tubular steel frame. Once in the foredeck, you can enjoy the comfortable dinette and large bar cabinet.

The livability of the interior is also revealed through useful solutions such as, for example, the descent staircase below deck traversed by glass panels that create protection, but equally leaving the feeling of open space to the side of the staircase where, in a sufficiently large area, the kitchen is developed. The rest of the deck has plenty of space occupied by three large cabins, all with private bathrooms, plus the sailor’s cabin. The owner’s cabin is at the apex of the bow, while the two for guests are aligned longitudinally aft.
